About Me

It all began when a supportive teacher asked me

to give a speech for my graduating class.

I said yes, but was really thinking

I'll choke, sweat & stammer.

Instead... I wrote, memorized, and prepared.

When the moment finally came, I stepped out front.

The whole room went black. Or, so it seemed.

I could hear my voice, but I couldn't see a thing.

Fearless, I forged ahead and before I knew it I was done.

I could see people smiling, clapping, and me?

Somehow I made it through.

Someone believed in me. Just a little bit more in me

and because of that, my life has never been the same.
